After Elon tweeted “working with the dev team” .. it got everyone thinking.
What dev team?
So, I did some digging.
Since the project’s founders, Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer, abandoned the project in 2015, developers like Nicoll worked on the open-source project in their spare time.
Then today an article came out.
“Dogecoin developer Ross Nicoll told Decrypt by phone on Friday that since Musk started talking to the developers in 2019, he has "encouraged them to improve the higher transaction throughput,” provided “lots of advice and input,” and shared his vast Rolodex of contacts.”
“Nicoll said Musk has been in touch with Dogecoin’s development team—Nicoll, Michi Lumin, Max Keller, “Patrick,” and “Sporklin,” who sadly died from cancer in April—since he was voted honorary Dogecoin CEO in 2019.”
Ok. So, lets take a step back.
- Blockchain projects are known, and frankly valued, for their transparency.
So why are they working in secret?
- The project basically has 3 part time devs.
How do the supporters of this community think 3 part time devs, and I billionaire, are going to fix a coin that was made in two hours, as a joke?
For Reference Cardano, IOHK alone, has 99 full time devs, and 278 person team and have been working on the project since 2015 full time.
I’m preaching to the choir to most of you, but I want you shibbys to read this too.
I held some doge once. It was fun. But non doge people are not your enemy.
These billionaires messing with the market while secretly trying to push a joke coin, for his own gain, are.
Don’t believe me, believe the founder of Doge.

Reminder: Elon Musk is and always will be a self-absorbed grifter
